Francis Condemns Catholic Media For “Denouncing Heresy”

Pope Francis told Central America bishops during World Youth Day in Panama that Catholic media suffer from a "lack of compassion”, VaticanNews.va writes (January 25).

Showing little compassion for those media, Francis accused them of “schism, condemnation, cruelty, exaggerated self-praise, the denouncing of heresy.”

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2089) heresy is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of truths which must be believed with divine and Catholic faith.

Why would Pope Francis therefore disagree to denounce heresies?

What are we supposed to do with heresy? Invite it for cocktails? Knit it a scarf? Make it a fourth at Bridge?

Calling out heresy is always compassionate for its goal is the salvation of souls.
